HousingWire identifies Sales Boomerang’s Richard Grieser as a Marketing Leader

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sales Boomerang, the mortgage industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, today announced that Richard Grieser, vice president of marketing, was named to the prestigious 2022 HW Marketing Leaders List. This award, presented by HousingWire magazine, is presented to marketing leaders driving outsized business performance in the mortgage and real estate industries.

By using client testimonials and clear and succinct messaging, Grieser had developed and delivered a marketing strategy for Sales Boomerang that not only allows the company's personality to shine through, but markets to prospects by putting lender partnership and education first. Through an omnichannel approach featuring highly informative webcasts, guides and courses, Grieser has been able to connect with audiences, promote Sales Boomerang's products, increase client retention and facilitate explosive year-over-year growth. In the last year, Gresier's marketing efforts helped Sales Boomerang to grow revenue by more than 116% year-over-year and increase existing customer growth rates by 400%.

"The HW Marketing Leaders distinction is a collection of the most esteemed marketing minds in the industry and I am humbled to be among them this year," said Grieser. "While I do not view this honor as an individual achievement because our amazing team at Sales Boomerang is the largest driving force behind our success, I am honored to be the face of those efforts. I strive to ensure all of Sales Boomerang's marketing efforts and strategies embody our ethos of No Borrower Left Behind(tm) and it is very gratifying to see those efforts not only achieve exponential sales and business growth, but also be recognized by a leading publication in our space."

In the past year, Grieser has spearheaded the production of several white papers and eBooks, providing lenders with numerous tools for increasing borrower retention, which Sales Boomerang has made available at no cost to the mortgage industry. Lenders have certainly seen the value in both implementing a borrower retention strategy and partnering with the industry's #1 automated borrower intelligence and retention platform to do so, as Sales Boomerang debuted on the 2021 Inc 5000 in the top 3% after seeing explosive three-year revenue growth of more than 3800%.

To make the HW Marketing Leaders list, nominees must be at the Chief Marketing Officer level (or equivalent) in mortgage lending, servicing and real estate and demonstrate leadership by continuously growing, leading and motivating high-performing marketing teams. The leaders must also show a track record of transforming brands, building their organizations' reputations, and driving business results within the industry.

"The accomplishments that we saw in the 2022 Marketing Leaders exemplify the crucial role that marketers play within their organizations and the vast impact that their work can have," HousingWire Editor and Chief Sarah Wheeler said. "Through their brand initiatives and strategic vision, this year's honorees not only set the stage for their brand perception and presence within the industry, but also shape, educate and grow their teams internally."

The full list of HW Marketing Leaders is available in the July 2022 issue of HousingWire magazine and can also be viewed online at https://www.housingwire.com.

Mobile Truck Mounted Medical POD to Aid Sick and Wounded Ukrainian Civilians Hand Off Event to United Help Ukraine

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Pacific Engineering Inc. (PEI) has joined forces with United Help Ukraine (UHU), Gaithersburg, MD to take a small, but critical step to provide much-needed care to Kharkiv's sick and wounded. PEI is honored to make a contribution to UHU by donating a truck-mounted Rapid On Demand - Portable Medical Platform (ROD-PMP™) to provide emergency medical assistance in Ukraine.

This is an urgent need as thousands of sick and wounded civilians and refugees urgently need medical care. The dire need for medical care is felt especially in "de-occupied territories in the beleaguered Kharkiv region," said Maryna Baydyuk, President of UHU.

UHU & PEI are conducting a handoff event in front of the Holodomor Memorial, Washington, DC on June 21, 2022, at 3 p.m. ET.

The memorial is located near the U.S. Capitol at the intersection of North Capitol St. and Massachusetts Ave. This location was chosen due to the historical significance of the Holodomor Memorial to five plus million Victims of the Ukrainian Famine-Genocide during 1932-33. This memorial has become a rallying point for US-Ukraine popular opposition against the Russian/Ukraine war. PEI's PODs can be a game changer for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, reaching large numbers of people in a short amount of time.

PEI, in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, first transformed the unique, lightweight, sandwich-composite technology, originally built for other purposes developed by using Navy Small Business Innovative Research initiatives, into safe and transportable COVID-19 testing PODS in 2020. The mobile PODS were deployed and used in Washington DC, Baltimore, MD Virginia Beach, VA and Omaha and Lincoln, NE during the height of the pandemic. Rear Admiral Osie V. Combs, Jr., USN (Ret.), President of PEI stressed the truck-mounted unit is part of a series of mobile units, including trailer-mounted and portable units that can be repurposed and provided to UHU for rapid deployment to Ukraine.

UHU was started in 2014 by a small group of people who had a personal connection to Ukraine in Washington, DC. UHU has been actively providing aid through services such as medical supplies (first aid kits and hospital equipment), personal protection equipment for medical and survival needs, portable surgical lighting, and armored ambulances.

In all, approximately 45 tons of supplies have been shipped to Ukraine with the continued assistance and hard work of UHU members and supporters. UHU provides medical aid and humanitarian relief to brave Ukrainians defending themselves. Its dozens of volunteers have prepared and shipped more than 7,000 medical kits for Ukrainian soldiers and collected thousands of pounds of food and medical supplies for civilians.

"When the Russian invasion began, we were appalled by the deliberate devastation of Ukrainian medical facilities. We immediately began to consider how we could apply our experience from developing COVID-19 PODS, expertise, and technology to help Ukrainians treat their wounded and sick civilians," Combs added.

PEI's mobile PODs can be available to communities, hospitals, agencies, NGO's and humanitarian organizations throughout the United States. The truck-mounted POD is outfitted with two clinic-type treatment areas as well as ample cabinet storage for medical supplies. Its extreme mobility allows the POD to move to numerous locations easily, quickly, and efficiently. Our design and manufacturing facility stands ready to provide POD systems within weeks of order placement.

All POD units utilize composite materials which have excellent properties that are lightweight, corrosion resistant, and easy to maintain. These units are deployable in all seasons, environments and are designed to be used for portable hospitals. PEI has designed the truck-mounted POD that can be customized to meet specific user needs and a focus to support humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

ABOUT PEI:

Pacific Engineering, Inc. (PEI), is a high-tech small business located outside of Lincoln, Nebraska. Since 1998, PEI has been a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced composite structures.

Sales Boomerang releases Q1 2022 Mortgage Market Opportunities Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sales Boomerang, the mortgage industry's top-rated automated borrower intelligence and retention system, today released its latest Mortgage Market Opportunities Report. The Q1 2022 report showed an increase in purchase and home-equity loan opportunities that could help lenders offset dwindling refi volume.

Methodology

The Mortgage Market Opportunities Report draws on Sales Boomerang system data to identify market opportunities of relevance to today's borrowers and lenders. To generate the report, Sales Boomerang reviewed data from more than 170 residential mortgage lenders that use its borrower intelligence and retention tools to monitor millions of customer and prospect records. Sales Boomerang then calculated and compared the aggregate frequency with which those contact records triggered loan-opportunity, prescriptive-scenario and risk-and-retention alerts during the fourth quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022.

Key Findings*

Sales Boomerang's loan-opportunity alerts identify the contacts inside a lender's database who are actively shopping for a mortgage loan or who may be able to benefit from a new mortgage loan. Across the sample group, the frequency of each alert type in Q1 2022 was as follows:

* Mortgage Inquiry Alert: 4.53% of monitored contacts (up 2.49% from Q4)

A customer or prospect has shopped with a competitor in the last 24 hours.

* EPO Alert: 2.54% of monitored contacts (up 38.04% from Q4)

A customer or prospect whose loan closed ≤ 6 months ago has shopped with a competitor in the last 24 hours.

* Credit Improvement Alert: 1.77% of monitored contacts (up 55.26% from Q4)

A customer or prospect has improved their FICO score.

* New Listing Alert: 0.85% of monitored contacts (up 32.81% from Q4)

A customer or prospect has listed their home for sale.

* Equity Alert: 9.13% of monitored contacts (up 6.04% from Q4)

A customer or prospect's home equity has increased.

* Rate Alert: 4.33% of monitored contacts (down 14.60% from Q4)

The interest rate of a customer or prospect's existing mortgage is significantly higher than current prevailing rates.

Sales Boomerang's prescriptive-scenario alerts analyze not only whether a consumer could benefit from a given loan type, but also whether the consumer is credit-qualified to apply for financing. This additional layer of intelligence makes prescriptive-scenario alerts among the highest-converting available to mortgage lenders today. The frequency of each alert during Q1 2022 was as follows:

* Cash-Out Alert: 5.25% of monitored contacts (down 6.75% from Q4)

A borrower is credit qualified and has built sufficient equity to tap into the cash in their home.

* Rate-and-Term Alert: 4.93% of monitored contacts (down 50.95% from Q4)

A borrower is credit qualified and can benefit from the current interest rates for a refinance.

* FHA MI Removal Alert: 10.48% of monitored contacts (down 25.20% from Q4)

An FHA borrower has exceeded 20% equity and can remove mortgage insurance (MI).

For a subset of lenders that maintain servicing portfolios, the frequency of risk-and-retention alerts was as follows:

* Risk & Retention Alert: 32.87% of monitored contacts (up 5.42% from Q4)

A customer is engaging in one or more of 15 credit activities that may put their serviced loan at risk

Analysis*

* Mortgage Inquiry, EPO and New Listing alerts all increased in Q1 as consumers actively put themselves in the market for mortgage products. As the spring buying season picks up, lenders will need to be diligent in their borrower retention efforts, especially those looking to avoid an early payoff penalty.

* Despite the uptick in EPO alerts, Rate and Rate-and-Term alerts both decreased in Q1, another indicator that consumers are looking to purchase, not refinance. Of the alerts that decreased in frequency in Q1, Rate-and-Term alerts showed the biggest change, confirming the long-anticipated slowdown of the refinance boom.

* Slow is a relative term, however, as Equity alerts increased for the second consecutive quarter. As homeowners continue to build equity, lenders should continue to educate borrowers on home equity mortgage opportunities.

* After a significant drop in Risk & Retention alerts in Q4, the category saw a 5.42% increase in alerts in Q1. As more borrowers are flagged for exhibiting risky credit behaviors, mortgage servicers should continue to keep a close eye on their portfolios for default risk.

* Credit Improvement alerts saw one of the largest increases in Q1, signaling more credit-worthy borrowers are ready to begin shopping for a mortgage. Savvy lenders will recognize this opportunity to be proactive in their outreach.

"Experts have anticipated the switch to a purchase market for a year or more, but the market was slower to transition than initially expected. Our data verifies market opportunities are finally trending in the direction of purchase loans," said Sales Boomerang CEO Alex Kutsishin. "However, as the purchase market heats up, it will be important for lenders not to get tunnel vision, as our data shows increased opportunities in home-equity lending as well."
